Dynamically generate movie new releases from Amazon?

P: 35
I've seen some websites (dvdtalk.com is one example) which have randomly generated links to new releases movies on Amazon.com. Now I've signed up for the affiliates program, and I can build the link (amazon.com/o/ASIN/#/affiliate-id), but so far I've just been manually adding data to my database, including the title, ASIN number, and image address. Is this how the bigger sites do it, or is there a more automated way? I'm using php/mysql.

I believe Amazon provides an XML API for accessing all of their data, but that is as much as I know about this.

Thanks I'll look into that.
